Spotify’s Group Session Feature Now Allows Remote Listening For Up To Five Users

Spotify’s Group Session feature, which allows Premium users to listen together in real-time, is going remote.

Initially launched in May, the evolving feature has received a major update. Starting today, Premium users can tune into the same playlist or podcast at the same time no matter the distance, when they previously had to be within the same space.

Now, up to five users can stream together wherever, and a group can also get remote playback on separate devices and shareable ‘join’ links. To start a session, the host can share a unique link or scan code with guests by clicking the Connect menu in the bottom left corner of their play screen and scrolling down to ‘Start a group session.’

The Group Session feature is currently still in beta and will continue to be updated and improved over time.
